Murder Equals Sexual Pleasure

Name Space:

Want another way to show what a Complete Monster a character is? Have them actually get aroused or have an orgasm/masturbate at the thought/action of killing another character. Compare Sex Is Violence.

Anime and Manga
  • In Full Metal Panic! Gauron gets aroused when he hurts or kills other people.
  • In Mahou Sensei Negima! Tsukuyomi is implied to get aroused from murder.
  • Jan Valentine of Hellsing once declares that he has a hard-on while killing Hellsing personnel.
  • Héloïse Villefort of Gankutsuou masturbates while thinking of the Count and the poison ring he gave her. Essentially she was getting off to the thought of murdering her own husband and stepdaughter.
  • In Death Note if Light's slasher smiles are of any indication he appears to get pleasure out of murdering people.
  • In Bleach one of Ichigo's earlier enemies, the hollow called Shrieker, was a serial killer who stabbed a young mother to death and got off on it. His greatest regret is being killed before being able to do the same to her child, Yuichi Shibata.

Literature
  • In IT the description of Patrick when he was five-years-old suffocating his baby brother describes him as having a hard on while he was doing it.

Live Action Tv

Fiim
  • In Psycho apparently Norman's murder of Marion in the shower was brought about by his sexual repression. The entire scene reeks of rape metaphors as well.

Real Life
  • Lots of serial killers get off on killing. Knifes, phallic symbols, etc.

    Forever Knight seemed to allude to this in a sense with the vampires...saying that feeding (and therefor killing, for most vamps who aren't Nick) equals sex.

    In 1984 Winston Smith initially sees Julia's mask as the perfect party woman, and fantasises about raping her and cutting her throat at the moment of climax.

    This is a hallmark of Lust-based Serial Killers.

    Speaking of Death Note, how about Teru Mikami and his inordinate fondness for "sakujo?" The scene where he's writing down the names of the SPK members during the final episode and the finish, which looks to all the world like he's having an orgasm? Yeah.
